After his collegiate wrestling career, our guest did what millions others do. He got a job.  His job happened to be teaching Spanish and he would quit to go and train to be an MMA fighter.  It was a pretty good decision as you will hear in today’s Athlete On Fire show.  Listen to his physical and mental prep and what he is doing now to empower other athletes and entrepreneurs!
